CHESAPEAKE, Va., March 29 /PRNewswire/ — Cox Communications has launched Ultimate Cox High Speed Internet in Hampton Roads. Powered by the strength of DOCSIS 3.0 technology, Ultimate Internet offers customers some of the fastest broadband speeds in the marketplace, with downloads up to 50 Mbps and uploads up to 5 Mbps. DOCSIS 3.0 is a cable-exclusive technology that allows providers to combine Internet channels in a new way to offer even faster speeds and more robust features.
“We’ve listened to our customers, and they continue to tell us that speed and reliability are among the main reasons they choose their Internet service provider, so Cox has invested heavily in our network to ensure we continue to deliver on our commitment,” said Gary McCollum, Cox Senior Vice President and General Manager.
In addition to base download speeds up to 50Mbps, Cox Ultimate Internet comes with a free feature called PowerBoost®, which provides a temporary extra burst of speed for file downloads and uploads when there’s extra capacity available on the network. That means customers can actually experience downloads up to 55Mbps.
“With more households adopting new Internet connected devices and more people in the home utilizing the Internet simultaneously, watching videos online, downloading music, gaming and working from home, speed makes a huge difference in the quality of experience. Ultimate Internet helps Cox customers get more out of what they’re into by doing all these things and serving all devices in record time,” said Jeremy Bye, Cox Vice President Network Operations.
Cox recently increased speeds of other packages for the 6th time in as many years. Premier Internet service increased from 20 Mbps download speed to 25 Mbps and Preferred Internet increased from 10 Mbps to 15 Mbps. Customers on these services received the faster speeds automatically and at no increase in price.
While Cox’s Ultimate Internet is designed with the high-demand user in mind, Cox continues to offer several other levels of Internet service, for everyone from the casual e-mail user to the avid music fan who enjoys downloading the latest hits. And no matter which package the customer selects, Cox offers award-winning technical support and important safety features such as the free Cox Security Suite powered by McAfee.
